DP Revalidation

The Nautical Institute is changing the requirements for revalidation of the NI DPO and DPVM certificates from 1st January 2024. 


To make sure that DP operators keep pace with the developing standards in a fast-changing industry, DPOs and DPVM certificate holders renewing their certificates will now be asked to demonstrate either NI-approved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or complete the DP Refresher and Competency Assessment Course as well as having completed the mandatory 150 DP sea time days. 


The video below is a short presentation given by the CEO of The Nautical Institute, Captain John Lloyd MNM RD MBA FNI.  Here, he outlines the role of The Nautical Institute in developing new schemes for the development of seafarers, as well as giving an overview of how and why the new requirements for revalidation of DP certificates evolved.
